Joe Biden, Armin Laschet and the future of transatlantic relationships

The New Statesman's World Review podcast with Jeremy Cliffe and Emily Tamkin.

In the week when Germany’s governing party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), elected Armin Laschet as its new leader, and Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States, Jeremy Cliffe and Emily Tamkin are joined on World Review by Constanze Stelzenmüller, Fritz Stern Chair on Germany and Transatlantic Relations at the Brookings Institution.

In this episode, they discuss what these new appointments mean for the future of relations between Europe and the US, and how the rise of China will play out for the transatlantic alliance.
